Searching for ancestry of Samuel Patrick Ferguson.  Spelling various on 
earlier census as Furgason.  Born September, 1853 in Virginia.  Consistent state of 
birth on all censuses.  Married in Ironton, Lawrence County, Ohio to Eustatia 
Guthrie in 1874.  Sam's father is listed as Elisha Furgason as affirmant on 
marriage certificate in Ironton.  Sam P. Ferguson and wife Frances Eustatia 
Guthrie listed on Greenup County, KY census until no trace after 1880 census 
list.  Eustatia died in 1892 in Waldo, Arkansas and is buried in the Waldo 
cemetery.  There were seven known children to this union: Alice, Mary, Matilda, 
Kelley, Ellen, Albert and Robert. Sam was married several times after death of 
Eustatia to: Georga (spelling on census in 1900), Florence Waldrop in Harrison 
County, Mississippi in 1905, Dally B. LNU in Tuscaloosa, AL census 1920.  Samuel 
listed as a Mason in Arkansas and son Kelley listed as a Mason in Winn Parish, 
Louisiana.  Samuel died in 1946 and is buried in Waldo, Arkansas next to his 
first wife Frances Eustatia Guthrie.  Samuel was a railroad engineer as 
occupation on several censuses.  Cannot ascertain exact spelling on Sam's father as 
it is sometimes listed as Elisha, Eligah, Elijah in Greenup County, Kentucky 
and various Virginia censuses.  Surnames of children's spouses: Baker, Ussrey, 
Brown, Dempsey, Keith, Todd.
